Detail and texture sum up La Petite Mort wines best. Wonderfully well considered wines they are. This Chardonnay is a treasure.
The fruit was sourced from just over the Queensland border from the New England region. Barrel fermented with judicious use of oak, this is a clever Chardonnay hands down. The aim was to emulate those Chardonnays of southern Burgundy - tick that box and then some.
A stunning and captivating weight the highlight. With a dancy presence, it waltzes through the mouth with graceful ease. Licks of lemons, barbecued nectarine, vanilla cream and almonds all mingle beautifully with one another. Delicate roasted cashews to close with a captivating and well handled acidity. Oh my, this is something.
